fiulijn (18780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy light amber color, with creamy head. The aroma is quite anonymous for an IPA. The body is quite strong, the mouthfeel is smooth, but the flavor is stale, some malt and old wet cereals; it has a strong bitterness level, but no real hop qualities.
Boring.

Lagerboy (1911) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Cloudy orange yellow, frothy off white head settles and lasts. Light sweet malts and piney floral hoppy aroma and taste, some citrus fruit. Weighty and full flavored. Average carbonation, medium bodied, medium hopped. Long bitter hoppy finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
On tap. Nice deep copper IPA with thin but creamy head. Lace all down the glass. Nice biting bitterness with enough resin, pine and citrus to satisfy any West Coast IPA lover. Just enough malt to back it up. Well done.

mcberko (14077) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium off-white head. Nose if full of buttery, floral hops, with some dry earthy notes. Flavour is the same, with dry, bitter, earthy hops, a subtle floral kick and just enough malt to back, though still quite unbalanced is it has a noticeable astringency. Decent, middle-of-the-road IPA.

stantheman (894) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
In a tulip glass at The Met. A beautiful reddish brown coppery color. Nice and bitter!

dnstone (2614) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Maltier nose (for an IPA). Orange-gold in color with not much for head. Flavor is also malt-dominated.

cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy pale yellow, thin head. Nice nose, lots of critics and pine notes. Taste is good but doesn’t quite live up to the nose.

Zeswaft (1647) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Aroma and flavor and pretty lacking. Most of the flavor is just bitterness. I guess you could say grassy. Mouthfeel is creamy and appearance is pleasurable.

3.7
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
reebtogi (5594) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head with good retention and leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aromas are of citrus and floral nature with some caramel. Taste is citrus hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness underneath. Medium body and adequate carbonation. This is an IPA that will satisfy most with its easy drinkability.
